I've also noticed some other albums that were uploaded throughout 2021 and were not access restricted in Long Playing Records became Samples Only in the past month or so.

Not sure what the rights management is like for the collections, but my guess would be that the curators are learning that some previously open items are rights protected. I've watched many of my favorites in Album Recordings (now called Long Playing) go from open to samples over the life of the collection.

If you have been keeping favorites in your profile, here is a quick filtered search to check for items that are now Samples Only. Enter your user name in place of USERNAME.
